Jabbawockeez Announced for Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights 2015 – Why That’s a GOOD Thing

Jabbawockeez Halloween Horror Nights 2015Universal Studios Hollywood has announced that the world-famous dance crew known as the Jabbawockeez will be the headlining show for this year’s Halloween Horror Nights event here in Los Angeles. Immediately, social media was ablaze with negative response from fans of the Halloween event, ranging from, “Not very impressed – wish Bill and Ted was coming back,” to “So what does this have to do with horror? Murdy is going soft on me.”

On the flip side of that, there has been a lot of positive reception to the announcement as well, which evens things out for the most part. Here’s the official release from Universal Studios Hollywood, and then I will weigh in on why we think adding the Jabbawockeez to the HHN 2015 lineup is a smart move:

Jabbawockeez, the highly-accomplished, award-winning hip hop dance group, universally recognized as America’s best dance crew, will bring their innovative choreography, intricate synchronized style and signature white masks to Universal Studios Hollywood in an electrifying new show during Halloween Horror Nights, beginning Friday, September 18, 2015.

Attempts to evade the terror of the undead and the inhumane brutality of mankind will be the underlying theme of these mazes as guests navigate authentic three-dimensional recreations of one of television’s most talked about shows, The Walking Dead.

Following in the footsteps of The Walking Dead cast, guests will begin their journey at the Terminus safe-haven compound, where an unspeakable hunger has consumed the demented souls of those dwelling within. As the chaos ensues, guests will encounter even greater atrocities as they stumble upon dismembered “W” walkers, witness the horror of victims besieged by the living dead, and step onto the loading dock of the Del Arno Food warehouse to face hordes of “W” walkers.

“I couldn’t be more delighted to continue and expand The Walking Dead universe with Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando than by having fans experience some of the most harrowing and suspenseful moments of our show,” said Greg Nicotero, executive producer and special effects makeup supervisor for The Walking Dead.  “Halloween Horror Nights is the gold standard to which all other Halloween-themed events try to emulate, so to bring authentic walkers to this event, alongside other horror greats, is the ultimate thrill.”
